"Enjoy the life you have, even though it may not be the life you planned."
As I sit here pissed at the world because of a horrible situation at work, I realize we are in charge of how we deal with the good things and the bad.
Today I choose to cherish the good things about the life I have and block the bad things that are happening.
Last night was a pig-fest. I decided not to crack open a bottle of wine but I did revert to another form of crack for me. My friend, food. Yup, anything and everything went through the band last night. I did a lot of chewing too. I've done this before, using food to drown out the crap and I know it will happen again. I will move on like always, realize the behaviour and know that this isn't the life I planned but the life I have.
I have three more days of dealing with a very toxic work environment. Then I'm on to a new position, new manager, new team. One piece of advice I have embraced was that people don't leave their jobs, but rather leave their bosses. And right now that is the truth.
This wasn't planned, but it is a new door opening. New opportunities.
I have incredible support from a few close friends who are there to listen to my rants. They have been my life-support and hope they know how precious they are to me.
For today, I will enjoy the life I have.
